SPIRIT OF THE DECADE: A look into last decade’s animation and blogging trends!

January 6, 2010 at 12:00 pm Leave a comment


I consider it the greatest irony to be writing about animé trends from 2000 onwards even though my exposure to it has been painfully limited. In fact, while trawling through the top (insert arbitary number here) lists, I’m actually learning new things.

Let’s just say I did not fully appreciate some of the stuff I was watching and am now scrambling to learn more. Also I didn’t know Kawamori was off being James Cameron when he’s not being James Cameron with TRANSFORMING ROBOTS POWERED BY POP MUSIC (also known as fucking around with the Macross franchise).

I’ll be liberally referring to MATT ALT’s timeline and related articles as I go along, peppered with what I can glean from THE PATRICK MACIAS LECTURES ABOUT OTAKU CULTURE. (The CAPS LOCK is totally required.)

However, let me just say something about the last decade.

How could people not watch shows like Busou Renkin and Overman King Gainer? I mean, If Fukuyama Yoshiki sang the OP (or ED) to a show, it’s probably a good bet the show IS good. Then again, people pay good money for troll attempts like Endless 8 and The OverHype Of Suzumiya Haruhi, so I can’t really say anything.

Also, when the most significant robot shows of the decade are remakes of already known classics and moépop Macross (and Gurren Lagann), there’s a big problem.

…Yeah. I need to read more.
